Dave Stahl Band Recordings

Anaconda

LP - $12.00
MAIL ORDER FORM

This premier recording of the Dave Stahl Band is a contemporary jazz instrumental offering of 5 originals and 3 arrangements. Recorded in New York City, this studio recording was released in LP format only, but is done sparing no expense. The manufacturing process is DMM (Direct Metal Mastering), done by Europadisk of New York City. The use of the thickest and best virgin vinyl available and DMM all adds up to a recording (LP) that has the fidelity and dynamic range of a CD as well as the warmth and presence of analog. This state of the art process (DMM) was written about in a feature article in Audio magazine. Your turntables will get a workout with this LP. Available in LP format only.

Reviews

This is a very well recorded album that lets you enjoy the full, rich bass lines as well as those extremely high frequencies that only a poweful brass team can produce."
Brass Conference Journal

"Clean, punching ensemble work dominates, with hip solos strategically placed. Good record."
Downbeat

"With adventurous solos and precision section work, this is a live-wire outfit of contemporary sensibilities."
